The Bulls are coming off an impressive one-point win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night, and now they are staying home for a Saturday game against the Washington Wizards. The Wizards are -6 favorites on the road in this one, and it could be a bargain with the Baby Bulls tired.

Free NBA Pick: OVER 214 ½Best Line Offered: at BetOnline

We’ve hit rough patch right before the All Star Break, but it’s time to turn things around tonight with the Wizards and Bulls. Washington has been playing well without John Wall, and their quest for a top four playoff seed will come down to games like this where they are supposed to win.

However, I can’t trust either one of these teams right now, especially the Wizards who have lost two straight games coming into this one. However, the total of 215 points brings about a nice value opportunity on Saturday with the Bulls coming off a game the night before.

While Chicago is only 4-5 cashing the over on no rest this season, but they also have not played a lot of back to backs recently. Lately they are giving up 113 points per game over their last five, and even without LaVine tonight, they should be able to score some points against this Washington defense.

The Wizards are 18-14 cashing the over against Eastern Conference teams this season, while the Bulls are 11-6-1 cashing the over when they are coming off a SU win. As a home dog, the Bulls are 9-8-1 cashing the over this season, and they are 17-13-1 cashing the over against the East.

Considering the Wizards are 11-4-1 in their last 16 games cashing the over, and considering they are 6-2 cashing the over in their last eight road games, take the over in Chicago tonight.
